About the town

Truro has fewer residents now than it did in 1840, when Pamet Harbor was a whaling and shipbuilding port, which is possibly one of the best reasons to go there. Beyond a post office, a seasonal gourmet food market and a single blinking light, there is hardly a town to Truro, Massachusetts.  And beyond beautiful homes built into the hills and a narrow strip of tiny cottages and motels, there is little real commercial development here – it is more a sleepy and rural world of moors, hills, valleys and rivers with homes hidden amongst the trees. Back roads wind through fascinating scenery dominated by long rolling hills called “hogsbacks.”
